Nick at Nite gets Fran for Nanny Valentine's celebration

The_nanny_wedding_fran_max_cbsHow's this for a romantic and funny way to celebrate Valentine's Day: make it a week-long marathon of The Nanny episodes on Nick at Nite. What? That's not red roses, Dove chocolates and champagne to you?

The idea of reliving the sitcom fun of the nanny named Fran blowing into the life of theatrical producer Maxwell Sheffield and falling in love with him while taking care of his three children was the stuff of television romance when it aired on CBS from 1993 to 1999.

Part The Sound of Music, part schmaltzy broad Jewish shtick, The Nanny was fun stuff. For this marathon, Fran herself, actress Fran Drescher will host the week which Nick has dubbed Valentine Schmalentine.

Starting Monday, February 8 though Sunday, February 14, from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. (ET), Frank will reminisce about the show while sharing her expertise on love, dating, romance and relationships -- to comic effect, because, seriously, Drescher's a comic. This is all a big Valentine hoot, not to be taken as more than a chance for some nostalgic good times. If you remember watching the show or don't, you'll still laugh because it was a goofy, fun show.

How goofy fun was it? The theme song is still a gem. It was written by composer Ann Hampton Callaway -- and that's her singing with her sister Liz Callaway, the Broadway musical star. Watch and listen:
